Movies / Cameras in the Movies / TV / Media If you are a photographer, it's difficult not to appreciate movies too. In this forum you can discuss movies, as well as the cameras used in them. What camera used in what film / TV show etc has long been a topic of discussion at RFF. Whether the Exakta and 400mm Kilfitt lens in Hitchcock's Rear Window or the Nikons in Eastwood's Bridges of Madison County, cameras are tools which reflect the time and technology of the film.

Good point Bob. I must say when I followed the link I was surprised to see that Mr Parr was asking for sponsors. Maybe he's got a gambling habit to feed?

I do like his photographs, but not enough to buy any. Oddly, just this morning, I was surfing round the Amazon web site and was tempted to buy one of his post-card collections.

It surely does not represent everyday life in Atlanta, Georgia. I would think the average middle-class person I know would be offended.
I didn`t think it oddball .....rather fun in fact.

He`s from the north west of England and so will, I`m sure, have shot in Blackpool .
Now that can be oddball.

Got it. My wife(a documentary film maker, herself) just pointed that out to me.

I still don't like it.

Well, I learn something everyday. Thanks, Michael for posting this and for the others' comments as well.

Never heard of Martin before but now have some fun reading/watching to do over the weekend.

Please excuse me reviving this thread, but it was j_j's 'cup of tea' reference that got me thinking. I eventually remembered Jon starting this short thread and the onward link here which may add somethink.. or nothink.

He seems to focus on class, crass and cliche, tweaking the "small", negative emotions. I don't have much appetite for it.
